the president, the opposition would be in the streets -- that is not what happened. you had the police, the army, the interior ministry, the bureaucracy essentially flee, including a party of regions, yanukovych's own party, who was calling him a criminal and crook. it was the strategy of putin to restore as much of the rand view of russia as he could. can he be stopped without the west being able to come forward from germany and other players without money guarantees because of the debt and maintenance of the government? >> it is a critical question in part of it is going to come down to dollars, two rubles, to whether the imf and eu can sweeten the pot. i think there is no question they will do that. the question is, how much?
